BSA Changes to Eagle Palm Process

Posted on Jul 17 2017 - 5:00pm

BSA recently announced significant changes to the way Scouts earn Eagle Palms, bringing the requirements in line with the needs of older Scouts. The National Boy Scouting Subcommittee has eliminated unnecessary obstacles, such as the Eagle Palm Board of Review (BoR), and expanded the definition of "active participation". But the biggest change affects young men who haven’t yet earned Eagle. Beginning August 1, 2017, all earned Palms may be awarded 'instantly' to new Eagle Scouts at their Eagle Court of Honor (CoH). This abolishes the wait of months or years for these young men to receive all Eagle Palms available to them. Read more at:
